Eligibility: Must be Optimum (OPT) customer. Must maintain both Altice Mobile and OPT accounts in good standing and Altice Mobile service at current level to maintain promotional pricing. Failure to maintain either account in good standing, disconnection or termination of OPT service, or changes to level of Altice Mobile service will result in loss of promotional pricing, after which regular rates will apply.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Seems like a tempting offer. I'm just going to count the months until the "network enhancement" fees kick in.

I stopped considering it when I saw they were running on the Sprint network (though Roaming on AT&T does sound interesting).

My guess is that this is (partially) in response to Verizon FIOS.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Connect Globally
Unlimited Everything keeps you connected with friends and family in Canada, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Europe, Israel and more -- over 35 countries are included.1 GB of 4G LTE data is already included as part of Unlimited Everything. Additional 4G LTE data can be purchased as add-ons:
A 15-day, 1GB data pack is $15
A 30-day, 3GB data pack is $30


It's the same as Free Mobile in France and Golan in Israel.

At the beginning it will not be best coverage, but will be better with time.

Seems like the French (if we can consider Drahi French) can be credited for cell phone pricing and plan revolution in the US, after it was done in Israel by the French (Michael Golan).

Actually Golan was made by Niel Xavier that he was the guy behind Free I'm France.
And I think that he took a "Jewish" face to run the service in Israel (=Golan telecon)

Drahi start by buying out other companies (competition) to take over the monopoly and then he start the war with free for the benefits of the customers

The Bottom line is that it all eminates from France.
